I got some apples, apple cider, and fried apple pies, these are so good. We even found some Christmas gifts.( I like to start early) it was a wonderful day.

The Autumn Greetings challenge starts today at the DRS designs blog. I hope you can come on over and join in the fun.

For my card I used the Scarecrows and Corn Rows Greeting, Lady Scarecrow, Large Scarecrows, and the Medium Silhouette Leaf. All of the stamps can be found at DRS designs. The background was created using Twinkling H2’0s in Bronze Medallion this was painted on the stamp. Copic markers were used to color the scarecrows.

A weekend in Talking Rock

Wow it has been a busy few week. We spent this past weekend in Talking Rock Ga. It’s the third smallest town in the state. The weather was beautiful, and I thought I would share a few pitchers with you, some of them are not very good, It’s amazing what changing your camera setting will do for pitcher quality.

Have a wonderful day,

Your So Sweet

Hello everyone, my card today uses two of the new DRS designs released Halloween stamps,                   Your So Sweet , and the Mini Marshmallow, this stamp is sooo cute.

I stamped the Toasting Marshmallow in Tuxedo Black and colored with copic markers. A Spellbinder Oval die was used to cutout the image and antique linen Distress Ink was sponged around the edge while it was still in the die. This was layered on to a Spellbinder scalloped oval. I stamped the Mini Marshmallow and cut it out and popped it up.
